The basis of controlled operations

Corporate Governance is about management and control, responsibility and power, and about supervision and accountability within a company. It is important to have governance in place. In addition, the company concerned must be accountable to its stakeholders and shareholders for the policy conducted. In this respect, it is important that relationships are good and that a balance of power is created. This leads to an accurate and well-functioning board and management, which in turn has an effect on the rest of the company.

VIOTTA lawyers provide advice regarding Corporate Governance and our clients include both SMEs and listed companies. VIOTTA advises listed companies in regard to the Corporate Governance Code. This Code applies to all listed companies whose registered offices under the articles of association are located in the Netherlands.
